Warm The Cockles of My Heart

Or, more accurately, my stomach.

There’s little I love more in winter than a hearty soup that warms you from your toes to your nose. In this case, it’s navy bean and ham. Except it’s not ham, per se. It’s salted local pork that is just yummy when crock potted for something like 10 hours with lots of beans, bay leaves, chicken broth, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, oregano, and probably some other things I’m forgetting right now. We’re making an extra soup a week right now, so we have something to munch on during the week for lunches, or put into the freezer for later.

Pull out your slow cooker and give it a try. Soups are a great, frugal, and usually healthy way to stave off those cold winter winds!
